About me

I enjoy working with adolescents and adults. My areas of special interest and experience include Depression, Anxiety disorders, low self-esteem, and long-term health conditions.

I have a passion for person-centred care and am experienced in working with a wide variety of clients and presenting difficulties. I take an integrative approach and enjoy complimenting CBT with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT), and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy Skills (DBT) where appropriate.

As an enthusiastic and empathic therapist, I maintain a warm, kind, and sensitive nature when discussing your difficulties; essential for effective, collaborative teamwork. I can offer a safe space to explore your problems, in which I encourage and enable you to facilitate the necessary changes in your life to achieve your personal goals.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
